shes like an old pickled onion........preserved.........and a preference of chavs with their fish and chip suppers.............the brits will know what I mean...........the majority of her followers fit into the fish and chip category..............
I can't believe you are making such a sweeping comment about a set of people whom you don't know personally, whose commonality is a liking for a known face - what a snobbish comment - followers fit into fish and chip category!
And brits will know what you mean? And the non-followers are all what? elitist, dine a 7 course meal served by penguins with different silver for each course? How naive of you?
Are you actually calling people who like ST 'chav'?
So what category are you then?
Wow! that is an amazing conclusion you have drawn for ST supporters!
Again I missed quite a bit of the action on the forum - but isn't it the "fish and chips" market that gave the world the philosophy of enjoying what you do and having fun at the workplace? I would take being part of that group as a huge compliment.
It is all a question of perspective at the end of the day.
I see that there has been some drama on the forum that has split a lot of people apart. But all I can say is that we can't judge a person for liking one or the other person. We can surely be judged for taking that appreciation too far.
If Nind has made that statement, I'm sure there has been enough provocation, coz in my interactions I've found both Nind and KB to be very reasonable and balanced people. We've often argued and been on different sides of the fence but it is often the case of "give respect to earn respect".
Like you think that it is wrong to be categorized for liking a particular person, I would say it is wrong on your part to categorize someone on the basis of just one statement taken out of context rather than judge them on their overall conduct in this forum for such a long period.
that's the whole point... i am not an ST supporter per se... but i dont mind supporting her in this show compared to the others...
and I have always enjoyed KB posts even if they were not in favour and even Shizaru's.
which is what has left me aghast - the reference to chav and fish and chips... the implication is not lost on me ... have lived long enough in the UK to know the context!
and at least on this post there was no provocation for this...it was the 4th or 5th comment.
i haven't categorized, if you read carefully i am asking a question ...it does not feel nice being categorized and hence was asking the person to have a think?
and chav is not a nice word.
